Project conference – Day 1

So this was an action packed first day at the conference. The keynote was a real game changer with a new price offering on Project Online. Just have a look at this picture:

Project_Lite_New_Offer

That’s right, Project Lite a Project Online offering just for the team members to write their time and do issue and task tracking. An offer that is 3 times cheaper!

Another slide showed that there is now a possibility to use SSRS on your online tenant! That is great for rich BI dash boarding. Those two actually got an applause during the keynote.

After that I went to some sessions, here’s the list and later on I’ll share info (slidedecks) as it comes available:

Three Approaches to Managing Operational Work in the Portfolio of Projects by Cindy Lewis,

Apps for Project – Top 10 success factors by Daniel MacDonald

Power tools for project managers – making Project Online and Project Server better with Microsoft Project desktop by Heather Heide

Building Stellar Project BI Dashboards with Visio by Chris Hopkins

After the sessions I had a nice dinner with the Dutch partners and clients at the conference. Annelies Tuinman, again thanks for setting this up.

And between sessions I had time to chat with Bonnie Biafore again and got some new material for my book reviews. Also I talked with Kenneth Steiness from Sensei Project Solutions who also recently published a book and build some great apps for Project Server 2013 and Project Online. More on those later!

It’s been a very long and very productive day, tomorrow I’ll start with the Fun Run!
